Palm Sunday - Hari Kari Avoided!
noon as I was setting every-
thing up for Palm Sunday Mass I was checking to see if everyone had gotten a Palm before Mass. Something also possessed me whilst in the aisle to announce "Oh, and PLEASE turn off all cell phones - it will be the first time in 3 weeks we haven't had one go off."
At Mass I processed in with the rest. And right about when I was due to do the 2nd reading, the thought occurred to me: "Karen, did you turn off your OWN cell phone?"
No worries, I found out after Mass - I had - but believe me, I sweated an extra bullet or two all during reading the narrator's part and afterwards! (I usually DON'T bring my cell in at all.) Not too many people call me all week, and most of my friends know I'm at Mass late Sunday afternoons ... but.....
Thank God. I would have gotten no end of grief!
